47-year-old Swede joins former Pittsburgh boss Jim Rutherford in Vancouver

Jim Rutherford says there are some big decisions looming for the Vancouver Canucks, but the president of hockey operations has crossed one large task off his to-do list: hiring a new general manager.

The Canucks on Tuesday named Pittsburgh Penguins assistant manger Patrik Allvin the 12th GM in the franchise's history.

"Obviously it's a big honour for me, taking on this opportunity," Allvin told reporters on a video call. "I'm extremely excited and honoured and proud to be part of the Vancouver Canucks going forward."

The 47-year-old three-time Stanley Cup winner has been with the Penguins for the past 16 seasons and was the director of amateur scouting before he was promoted to assistant GM in November 2020. Hailing from Leksand, Sweden, Allvin is the first Swedish general manager in the NHL.

The move to Vancouver reunites Allvin with Rutherford, who served as Pittsburgh's GM from 2014 to 2021 and led the team to back-to-back Stanley Cups in 2016 and '17.

"I've known Patrik for a long time and how he works and that he was a legitimate candidate," said Rutherford, who was named the Canucks president of hockey operations and interim general manager in early December after the club fired head coach Travis Green, general manager Jim Benning and several other front-office staff following a dismal start to the season.

"What they talked about in terms to culture, identity and standards, that's something I truly believe in and I'm very excited to continue to have them on board here."<br><br>🗣️ General Manager Patrik Allvin on Henrik and Daniel Sedin <a href="https://t.co/tPssR2AAfd">pic.twitter.com/tPssR2AAfd</a>

Rutherford spoke to a number of people about the GM vacancy and narrowed his list down to five candidates for in-person interviews. While all of the interviews went well, he said, Allvin stood out.

"He's a very smart guy," Rutherford said. "He knows players, he knows how to evaluate players, he knows how to find players, he's well-connected in Europe where we'd like to get into that market a little bit more and try to get some more players out of there. He has a lot of good things going for him and we already have the working relationship, we know how that's going to go."

Rutherford a draw for Allvin

The history and current status of the Canucks were intriguing to Allvin, but it was something else that really drew him to the job.

"I've got to be honest — the reason I'm here is excitement to work with Jim Rutherford again," he said. "And I know how he emphasizes hiring good people. I believe that Jim has done a good job building the staff and I look forward to meeting all of them here."

Rutherford added to his staff Monday, hiring former player agent Emilie Castonguay to be the franchise's first female assistant manager.

He previously tapped former scout Derek Clancey to fill another assistant GM role, named Canucks legend Stan Smyl vice president of hockey operations and announced that former Canucks stars Daniel and Henrik Sedin would continue in their roles as special advisers to the general manager.

"We could possibly still add some people. We're trying to make it as strong as we can," Rutherford said, adding that there may be an expanded role coming for Ryan Johnson, the club's director of player development and general manager of the American Hockey League's Abbotsford Canucks.

With new faces in the front office, Rutherford and Allvin said the Canucks need to look for ways to improve their roster.
